Incubator, Schmincubator. Hackathon, Schmackathon.
Pause for a moment and consider how many incubators are operating in the world right now. How many hackathons are taking place?
The mind boggles – they used to be geographically dispersed, then they focused on industry sectors, now they have proliferated down to the micro-industry level.
Startups are graduating from not one, but multiple incubators and they have still not been able to find their mojo.
There are ‘professional’ hackathoners who win event after event, but never actually produce anything.
All this innovation. All this busyness. But how much real progress is a being made? Are people and companies learning from these activities. Can we truly say wisdom is on the increase as a result of innovation?
Pause for a longer moment, think about it – what have you done to increase worldly wisdom today?
